Raukumara Red Sweet Bacon Wrapped Venison Loin

Sweet Bacon Wrapped Venison Loin

TIME REQUIRED: 1Hrs 20 Mins Total, (40 Mins Prep, 40 Mins Cook)

1 X Venison loin
250g bacon (Plain, thin-sliced Bacon is best)
3 cups dark brown sugar
2 cups soy sauce
1/4 cup white sugar (Optional for added Sweetness)

1 Mix brown Sugar and Soy sauce together in a bowl. They should combine nicely into a soupy soy liquid.
2 Put Venison Loin in a tin and pour Brown Sugar/Soy Sauce mixture over. Roll tenderloin over in mixture, completely covering it. Let meat marinate in mixture at least 3 hours or overnight in fridge. It's best to marinate for 8 hours if you have the time.
3 Remove loin from tray, and place on a slotted bake sheet with a drip pan or aluminium foil below to catch dripping. Don't throw away marinade. Wrap a piece of bacon around the very end of the loin, securing the bacon strip with a toothpick. Repeat this process until the entire loin is wrapped in ten or so bacon "loops." The loin should look like an arm with a bunch of wrist watches on it, the watches being the bacon strips.
4 Drizzle remaining marinade over venison loin. You can continue to baste the loin with the marinade throughout the cooking process with either a brush or a turkey baster. Place on centre rack in oven and bake at 180°C for 30-40* minutes. *This should cook the meat to about Medium. For those of you who prefer rare meat (like me), cut the time to 25-30 minutes. REST.
5 Place directly on a Grill over medium-high heat to sear the bacon and outer loin. Remove from grill and place on cutting board. Using a knife, cut the loin between each strip of bacon so that you have many pieces of meat, each with their own toothpick.
